PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry systems is designed to dry affected structural materials and contents and in a timely and effective manner can include:

  • A thorough assessment and inspection of the structure to determine what’s wet and how wet structural materials and contents are with infrared cameras and moisture meters.
  • The removal of standing water.
  • The application of specialized drying equipment.
  • Daily inspections and monitoring until materials have reached their pre-loss condition and established drying goals.

During Our Water Damage Restoration Process: Our IICRC certified PuroClean of Reno, NV water damage restoration technicians ensure that the damage caused by water to your property – the damage that can be seen and is hidden, is restored, they do this while caring for your property and your belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled and dried down quickly can lead to additional damage such as microbial growth, as well as cause structural components to lose their integrity, possibly impact indoor air quality, and may ultimately result in compromised occupant health issues. PuroClean’s IICRC certified technicians follow industry standards to properly remediate mold that has infected and/or damaged and return the property to a pre-loss condition. Once a scope of remediation and repair has been established, they will implement engineering controls and containment to prevent cross-contamination to unaffected sections of a building utilizing negative pressure with HEPA air filtration devices. A remediation protocol is developed to remove contaminants by:

  • The removal of compromised materials and contents per industry standards.
  • A thorough cleaning using HEPA air filter devices and HEPA vacuums.
  • A thorough cleaning of all surfaces with cleaning solutions that can include EPA registered disinfectants, followed by another HEPA vacuuming of all surfaces.

Many people use bleach to clean mold; however, this is an ineffective strategy as bleach does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s goal is to return your property to a safe and clean condition.

Odors are a sign that something could still be wet. If something has a musty pungent odor it can indicate microbial issues that can create MVOC’s (microbial volatile organic compounds) and can cause health related issues. PuroClean’s approach is to follow industry standards to develop the right scope of repair for your business or home, which includes employing specialized equipment, cleaning practices, followed by recommending a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired goal.

Water Damage Assessment:

  • Our technicians will first conduct a thorough assessment, perform daily inspections and monitoring to develop drying strategies and answer: What’s wet, how wet is it, is it drying, and has it reached its dry standard.
  • The assessment helps determine what damaged material may need to be removed due to structural integrity issues, damage not restorable, or contamination. Our goal is to dry all materials such as drywall, wood, carpet and padding, baseboards, furniture, insulation, furniture, upholstery, and more, providing they are not contaminated, or structurally compromised according to industry standards.

Reno, NV Emergency Water Extraction

We begin by removing any standing water present on your premises using high-grade equipment strategically placed to extract all water from the premises.

  • When the water has been removed, any affected structures and property are relocated to be stored or discarded. This first step happens right away and is performed using our commercial pumps. PuroClean will begin water removal immediately using our powerful commercial water pump machines. Upon completion of the water removal procedure, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings whether they are to be stored or discarded.
  • Once completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s professionals.

Drying & Dehumidification

The next step is to identify, isolate and prep all areas that up for drying and dehumidification.

  1. This process requires all belongings to be relocated to thoroughly complete the water removal.
  2. Air moving machines will be sat out around the premises strategically in the most affected areas. The areas that contain the most moisture will be the focus to pull out trapped water. Remember, these machines are very loud.
  3. During this dehumidification process, the moisture is pulled into the air by the air movers, which are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. PuroClean technicians dispose of all the excess water in a different location.
  4. To ensure that everything is being dried properly, your PuroClean technician will monitor moisture levels. Once moisture levels are normal, any removed property will be placed back to their original locations.

Final Cleaning Processes

Odors can form in a carpet that has been water damaged very easily due to soils and potentially from other issues such as mildew and may spread beyond the affected area to your entire home or business. PuroClean’s professional process of cleaning, deodorizing and spot removal will safely and effectively remove soils and organics that are odor-causing.

  • Our technicians will begin with a complete inspection and dry vacuuming of your carpet.
  • To properly repair the affected carpet, where needed, your furniture may require repositioning.
  • Pre-treatments may be required for heavily soiled areas, spots, or pet odors.
  • Post cleaning treatments can include textile or fiber protection, the cleaning of hard surfaces and contents that can help protect and prolong the value of your property.

PuroClean Reno, NV‘s Water Damage Dos and Don’ts

Although the repair of water damage in Reno, NV is a high priority, the safety of our customers and technicians is our most important priority. The following tips will help lower risk of suffering setbacks due to a heavy rain, flood, roof leaks or faulty plumbing or AC units; regardless of whether you are mitigating or restoring water damage.

What You Should Do:

  • Turn Water Off: Shut down the home’s water source and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Use Caution: Watch your step, as floors may be slippery. Also, watch for trip and fall hazards and for any exposed electrical wires.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cooler weather, open windows to speed up the drying process and in hot weather, only if it’s safe to do so, turn on your A/C.
  • Upholstery should be propped up: Any loose cushions and upholstered furniture should be propped up in a dry place.
  • Manage Area Rugs and Obstacles: Remove rugs and pick up any items that are sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Any storage containers such as wet suitcases and storage bins should be opened and dried in the sunlight if at all possible.
  • Protect Valuables: Relocate any paintings and other artwork to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry any damp clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
  • Protect Your Furniture: Place aluminum foil or plastic underneath furniture legs on wet carpeting. Open (but don’t force) drawers and cabinet doors to dry out the inside.
  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of Reno, NV. Our trained technicians are highly skilled in Reno, NV water damage repair.

What Not To Do:

  • Do not Use a Vacuum Cleaner: You can only use a wet-vac, which is produced to handle water. DO NOT USE your regular everyday vacuum cleaner.
  • Do not touch electrical outlets: Leave cords alone. If it’s plugged in, leave it and if it’s not plugged in, leave it alone. Don’t touch electrical cords at all.
  • Do not use electrical devices or appliances: DO NOT touch or run any electrical appliances, such as TVs, computers, radios, fans, or anything that may be hooked to electric power – and ESPECIALLY while standing on any wet floor, regardless of the material.
  • Do not turn on your heat: The cooler you can keep your affected area, the better. Warmer areas encourage mold growth.

Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?

Homeowners insurance provides coverage for sudden and accidental damage (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the water source, is NOT covered by standard homeowners policies.
